Hi, English is not my first language but I will try my best to explain. I am building a cheap pc that can handle programmes like cubase studio 6 and fl studio 10 (music softwares) primarily then can run the games such as dota 2, league of legends etc etc. I want to know, first of all, if there are any compatibility issues because Im not so good at understanding motherboard cpu. Then which one would be the better build for these programmes?

Thank you very much

I check internet for compatibility and says that I can use boards but I have to do bios update or something?

And yes I can use any psu, not set in stone. Would it help to put individiual prices?
